Great Depression Comic Strip

Storyboard Text

  • Alright Charlie. Just let me finish attaching this tire.
  • Aye, mate! Boss wants to see you down in the room.
  • Well... that's actually what I came here to talk to you about.
  • Holy cow Charlie! How do we still have so many cars unsold
  • What?!?That's why I'm being called down? No, no, no. I'm too young and too beautiful to die early!
  • I heard that we're losing money. The folk aren't buying the cars anymore. Boss isn't too happy, and started laying off people
  • (Read Charlie's thought bubble first)Factory workers working on an assembly line, manufacturing Model T. cars.
  • Please boss.. don't do this. I'll do anything. Just don't fire me
  • What are you?.. Get up and stop your blubbering.
  • (Read Heath's thought bubble first)Goods were overproduced and there was an excess of items.
  • ... Alright, I understand sir. I'll go pack my things and then I'll be on my way.
  • I'm sorry, Heath. But I just can't do anything about this. We don't have the money.
  • (Read Charlie's thought bubble first)Because of the overproducing of goods, and people not buying them, companies started losing money, and had to start laying off employees.
  • I guess it's just you and me now, bread.
  • (Read Heath's thought bubble first)Workers couldn't afford to be laid off, and needed these jobs to support themselves and their families.
  • (Read the boss's thought bubble first)Employees had no choice but to go.
  • Factory workers no longer got an income, because they no longer had jobs. This led to an American struggle.
